is about a run-in with the secret service and president clinton. what happened there? >> well, it was jackie robinson day, the first ever that they had, and they were going to retire jackie robinson's number, 42, throughout all of baseball, and president clinton decided the night before that he kind of wanted to be a part of the ceremonies. overnight shea stadium transformed into something that more resembled la guardia airport that there were metal detectors placed all over the place, and mr. met, myself at the time, couldn't get his big noggin through a lot of the metal detectors which caused a backlog in the line. you know, there was a little bit of metal in my head. the wands would go off when nypd was frisking me. they threw me up against the wall and put the cuffs on me. secret service was having none of that. they kind of -- they kind of, like, took me aside and said, mr. met, we're not going to bother you anymore. do what it is you normally do, but just so you know, there's snipers all around the ring of the stadium. approach the president, we go for the kill shot. >>

clinton is at 48%, rand paul 23, bloomberg 18 and jeb bush at 21. what is going on here? how much is based on these individuals? and how much is the fact that we're so sick and tired of nothing getting done in d.c. that we just blame everyone for it? >> i think clearly the american people have lost faith in d.c. as a city or a place where problems will get solved. they've lost faith for good reason. the polls may be more of just a lot of american voters just don't know those people. rand paul or jeb bush. a lot of americans haven't yet been introduced. if you were polling how many people have favorable views of barack obama back in 2006 he would also have low numbers. just because people didn't know who he was. the premise that the american people are sick and tired the of washington and the people who occupy washington has been true for four elections. obama has been successful in two presidential elections. definitely in 2008, less so in 2012. you can have some faith in that. but once he gets to washington he's largely been a disappointment especially for the independent voters in the mi

. this is an opportunity that the nba hilary clintons and it took full advantage of it, think it's a wonderful day for sports in america. >> let's talk about adam silver. this is really a huge day for him. the first real test on the job he has been in, as you said, about three months now, and making the point that we've got to fundamentally change the way that we think and the way that we act. i thought he handled it very well. he was to the point and compassionate. i know you know him very well personally. is it your sense that commissioners in the past would have made the same decision as him, or what does it tell you about him? >> his predecessor david stern, who he worked for for quite some time, there was criticism towards him that sometimes he might have put a halo over donald sterling because let's not forget, we know and we heard about donald sterling has been in the news before for racial discrimination, about elgin baylor who was his general manager, about not allowing blacks and hispanics and jews to rent out because he is a real estate mogul in l.a. i'm not sure how to answer that ques

, and ended two marriages, and was hitting president clinton at the time for his own infidelities. why is it, though, because there are so many stories like this, that we continue to get great advice from people that can't seem to take their own advice? >> i think it's just way too easy to become an inspirational icon in america, and newt gingrich is a prime example of that. he kind of put himself out as this moral leader, and he said he was, and everyone believed him. then he just fueled on itself, and there's just example after example from our culture of these people that were not good people. >> so, zach, let's talk about lance armstrong. i was until recently a huge fan. i read his -- >> my condolences. >> i read it's not about the bike. really i got a lot personally out of it. found it really inspirational, really moeshational. you have a quote from him in the book. he says winning is about heart. it's got to be in the right place. which just feels so weird and wrong hearing it come from lance armstrong, but, you know, he did have this sort of dogged determination that people really fou
